Welcome!

Here you will find information about the counselling and psychotherapeutic services I offer, the different kinds of things people seek help with, and what you might expect from the therapeutic process. Arriving at a time of crisis in one’s personal life, mental health, family or work situation is often what makes people look outside their immediate environment for a source of help. Such crises may arrive suddenly, out of the blue, or build up over time. You might also be wanting support to avoid reaching crisis point, to process past events, or to deal with things that are happening in your life now. The right kind of therapy at the right time can help to solve problems, work through difficulties, and support you at challenging times. If you would like more information or to discuss, in confidence, how we may be able to work together to address your concerns, you are warmly invited to call, text or email, or send a message through the Contact form.

Psychological Therapies

Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy is an opportunity to address long-standing issues or patterns by working through things at a deeper level. It is usually open-ended and once weekly, although more frequent sessions are possible. Therapy is helpful for family and relationship difficulties, and many kinds of personal issues. Influenced by psychodynamics, Jungian psychology and the transpersonal, it also supports self-development and personal growth. Therapy addressing the kinds of complex trauma that result from abuse in childhood or adulthood is a specialty.

Counselling

Counselling usually focuses on an identified problem or goal and tends to be shorter-term than psychotherapy. It may, however, be short or long-term, open-ended, or work to a pre-agreed number of sessions. Counselling offers much-needed support during difficult times or help in moving through a personal or family crisis, especially when anxiety or depression are involved. Counselling may also be appropriate in the aftermath of a traumatic event to help restore a sense of stability and safety, to manage symptoms and facilitate healing.

EMDR Therapy

Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing Therapy is a treatment for psychological trauma recommended by many national and international organisations, including our own NHS. It is effective for single event trauma, complex trauma, and PTSD. It is also appropriate for a number of other conditions including anxiety, panic attacks, OCD, phobias, complicated grief, anger, addictions, medically unexplained symptoms, and some types of physical pain. Gentle but powerful, EMDR does not require a detailed recounting of events.

Karen is a qualified and experienced counsellor and psychotherapist,

a graduate of the Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education, London.

 

She trained in transpersonal and integrative counselling and psychotherapy at CCPE, and with Matt Wesson of The EMDR Academy, and has wide experience in both short and long-term work with adult clients. Her therapeutic approach is relational and holistic. Her particular interests are depression and anxiety, somatisation and medically unexplained symptoms, crisis intervention, and the many manifestations of stress and psychological trauma. She also works one-to-one and with groups to facilitate personal growth and self-development from a transpersonal perspective.
